The amount of news about the results of the 2019 election in Indonesia, may make some of the readers in Indonesia, including myself, emotionally disturbed (both parties who feel defeated or won).
For this reason, in my opinion, it is necessary to refresh ourselves to return to the enthusiasm and not be carried away (disproportionate blame each other) that does not provide benefits for the progress of self and nation.
Do your best and leave everything to God so that we are given the best for Indonesia’s future.
Let’s just take a look at below positive quotes to refresh the mind to become more motivated!
Positive Quotes As Spirit Enhancer and Motivation
The Meaning of Thinking Big
“Great minds have purposes, others have wishes.” – Washington Irving
Desires and goals have almost the same meaning but actually, have different meanings.
The difference is, the goal is the ideals or targets that have been planned, which is a long-term achievement.
Whereas the desires are temporary needs or passions that appear at certain times, which are usually not permanent.
Big thoughts are thoughts that are always guided by goals so that they will not be shaken or changed due to temporary desires.
The Desire to Win
“If you have won, you have achieved half your success; if you don’t, you have achieved half your failure.” – David V.A. Ambrose
According to Ambrose, in making an effort, the enthusiasm to win is needed to achieve success.
What is the meaning of spirit to win? If you want to succeed at work, then you need to win against yourself, for example.
Beat all the laziness and feeling of doubt in yourself. Winning doesn’t have to beat your friends. But winning here is that you must be able to defeat your ego or your passions that are not in line with your ideals and goals!
But on the contrary, if you do not have the desire to win against your own laziness, then you have half the failure. So which one is your choice, success or defeat?
“The world behaves differently when you actually take action to go after what you want. What you wish ‘could be’ starts becoming. The dream moves in your direction, begins to come to you, even as you reach for it.” – Price Pritchett
Any effort or effort accompanied by prayer will certainly not be in vain.
If you try earnestly and focus on what you want to achieve, then according to Pritchett, your desires will become a reality.
You will be able to feel it, someday everything you try and want to achieve will come closer to you and become a reality (God willing).
“There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge.” – Napolean Hill
The positive quote above has many truths. If we limit our abilities through our thoughts, whatever our actions will usually be in line with what is thought.
Suppose you think that you are not able to speak in public, for example, then you will usually find it difficult when having to make a presentation in front of the client.
A limiting mind is usually an unconsciously embedded mind.
You need to introspect yourself to find out what thoughts are preventing you from succeeding and understanding how to overcome them.
Don’t forget to stay grateful for all the strengths you have.
The Canvas of Life
“Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.” – Danny Kaye
Like a painting artist, life is like a canvas that is ready to be filled with colours and the pattern of a picture that is written.
You only have to choose the shape of the image and the colour, whether you want white, blue, grey, and various shapes.
Make a picture on the canvas of your life that can benefit people who see it and give coolness to those who see the picture on the canvas of your life.
Wealth and Success Results from Habits
“Wealth is largely the result of habit.” – John Jacob A.
Successful and rich people don’t get their wealth instantly (except those who get it through lotteries or inheritance).
They have gone through many failures, trials and even suffering that we might never have imagined.
The habit of successful people is to keep trying and being disciplined about what they will do.
They make all positive actions a part of their habits.
If you want to be successful, it’s a good idea to learn about the habits of successful people who can and are suitable for you to follow to achieve your success.
Thus the positive quotes to refresh our spirit today.
Hopefully, the simple quotes above can increase our positive spirit today.
Don’t forget to keep on effort for trying, increase worship to Allah SWT and whatever it gives to us, stay grateful.
